QUICK OLD CRATES

So today I wanted to show you my quick fix for crates. I needed to create an old rustic feel for a wedding fair at short notice, so crates were an ideal feature. Only problem?  I didn’t have any crates. The lovely Jane in fallon & Byrnes was kind enough to give me some crates from their veg section but they looked so NEW!
So quick fix needed, I headed to my local euro shop and bought a cheap set of watercolours for €2. When you mix up red, black and blue you get this lovely aged brown, not a rich mahogany but a bleached cedar look. Apply it liberally mixed with a LOT of water and taadaa lovely aged crates! I think it’s one of my better rush jobs! The brides at the fair certainly loved it! Nikki xxx

BASH IN LYRATH

I had a busy day on sunday in lyrath estate, kilkenny. I was at the spectacular vintage wedding fair womanning a stall for Bash magazine! What a great day, I loved my set up and I had the luck or being next to the Dionnes!
Their rendition of “happy” had me dancing around like a happy monkey. The best thing was meeting all the lovely brides who read bash and told me they adore it. In fact, one bride had already bought her glasses to do my tutorials from issue one!
